Prizes for our giveaways are provided by donation of the author, publisher, production company, artist, manufacturer or by members of the staff. It is the responsibility of all entrants to read our policies before submitting an entry.
Winners are selected using Random.org, through Rafflecopter unless otherwise specified in the contest.
All winners MUST reply back to us via email within 48 hours of initial contact or another winner will be drawn. On certain occasions we will accept replies back via DM, but only at our request.
MOST contests are open to all of our readers including international fans. HOWEVER, there are times when we unfortunately cannot send prizes outside of the US. This may be due to restrictions by those that have donated the prize, region specific products, shipping restrictions, or simply sheer cost. All contests will state within the rules if they are open or restricted. Please read the rules carefully for each contest before entering.
MOST of the items in our contests are shipped directly from members of our staff which may result in prize packages arriving in multiple shipments. We will do our best to notify the winner if this is the case.
If you have won a prize, we know how excited you are to receive it and we will do our best to get your prizes shipped to you as quickly as possible, however we may not always have the opportunity to get to the post office right away. We strive to get all prizes we ship sent out within 5-6 weeks of the end of the contest. We however are not in control of the packages shipped by an outside donation or the processing time of the US Postal service.
Not all contest posted on Down With The Capitol are run by this site. We do on occasion post information on contests held by other sites, Scholastic, or Lionsgate itself. We post these links as a courtesy to the contest promoters and as a convenience for our readers. Please note, we are not responsible for the rules, winner notification or shipment for these contests.
Contest Policies are subject to change if the need arises.
